1. THE ORIGINALS: DAVE CHAPPELLE

    Visuals of my favorite skits and one of my favorite comedians.  Love him for all of the funny and comedy that he put into the world.  And for showing us that it’s okay to stay true to self and walk away.  Nothing is more important than your integrity and looking at yourself in the mirror…
